Access Bank unveils Access The Star
Access Bank is partnering Nigerian Breweries to host the talent hunt show.
The sponsors will give monetary awards of up to N150 million to the winners of the hunt, which will kick off this October.
Group Managing Director, Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, said;
“Both our brands share a long history of creating excellent musical experiences for not just own customers, but the wider Nigerian audience, and this is us expanding on that.”
“Access The Stars comes from the desire of both brands to continue to connect with people through the one platform they both have in common – music. Access Bank and Star Lager Beer share a long history of creating excellent music experiences for not just their consumers, but for the wider Nigerian audience.”
Managing Director, Nigerian Breweries, Jordi Borrut Bel, said;
“We have done this before, but this time, we want to bring something new and more entertaining to our consumers, where they not only enjoy good music, but get the opportunity to have their own voices and music showcased to the rest of the world. We are really excited about this.”
“Star Lager Beer is a well-known name in the Nigerian music scene, with hit concerts like Star Music – The Trek, Star Mega Jam, and famous talent show, ‘Star Quest’ which was a launchpad for the likes of Kcee, DJ Switch and many more. With the concerts, we took stars around the country and gave them the platform to entertain fans in different cities.”
Hosting ‘Access The Stars’ will be music superstar Dare Art Alade, with television host and radio personality, Olive Emodi as co-host. Choreographer and CEO Imagneto Dance Company, Kaffy, Nigerian Music Producer, Tee-Y Mix and Nigerian Music Star, Seyi Shay will judge the talents to be found across the country.
